Newspapers provide articles about current events and news. There are newspapers published locally and nationally. Like journals and magazines, newspapers are "periodicals" because they are published regularly and a good percentage of newspapers are published on a daily basis.
Newspapers can be found in print and in microform. (Microform is a miniature version of a publication converted into film or fiche that requires a special microform reader). Many newspapers also have their own Web sites with today’s news although they don’t necessarily provide free access to back issues. Newspapers are made available to you by subscriptions purchased by your library.
